PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students review what an almanac is, see examples, and are able to learn how to use a print almanac or an electronic, online almanac. The activity can be modified to use the print almanac entitled THE WORLD ALMANAC and BOOK OF FACTS to teach students to utilize the Index, as well as skim and scan for answers using the guide words. The activity can also be used with electronic, online websites, such as www.factmonster.com where students select and utilize guide words to find the answer.

A very enjoyable activity I used for many years when I was a librarian - it gets the students interacting with both forms of almanacs - print and electronic online websites.
